Has anyone tried (or does anyone have an advice on) rigging a 2013 Ozone Reo with the Compstick bar by Slingshot?

I've found a fairly good deal on a barely used 6M 2013 Reo, and since I already own the 2011 and 2013 Rally's (with the corresponding bars) I thought I'd skip on buying the requisite Ozone bar and just use the Compstick bars. It appears the Reo flags out on a single line, so the safety system should still be a match. Wondering if the line lengths would work too. And if I get to the point of experimenting with combining the Reo and the Compstick, are there any precautions I should take (e.g. do it on a light wind day, have someone hold the kite a certain way when launching, certain things about the kite behavior when in the air that I should watch for, etc.)?

Thanks, ivan

I fly C4on compsticks with no problems, you may have to swap the pigtails round but i can't remember how they came as I mod all my kites and bars to be interchangeable.

Thanks for the tip.

I checked out the line length specs and it turns out the Reo flies on a 45cm bar with 25m lines, which is fairly close to my 12M Rally's 50cm bar with 23m lines.
